We never get a good look at the face of the title character, but for sheer Village Picture ethnography, director Sergey Dvortsevoy’s down-home-Kazakhstan slice of life is hard to beat. On the dusty Hunger Steppe, a former sailor named Asa wants to marry the daughter of the family in the next yurt over, but there are complications — goats, cows, camels, donkeys, dogs, horses, and multiple repetitions of “Rivers of Babylon.” Useful scenes include a lesson in how to birth a reluctant kid. Dvortsevoy wrote the screenplay with Gennady Ostrovskiy. Startring Askhat Kuchinchirekov as Asa (100 min.).
